Judith McLaughlin, 62, Miltona, died October 27, 2009.
Judith was born November 28, 1946 in Minneapolis to Lester and Marcella (Huntley) Hake. Judy grew up in Minneapolis and attended school there.
On September 10, 1966, Judy was united in marriage to Harry M. McLaughlin in Minneapolis. The couple resided in the Twin Cities area for several years before moving to Alexandria where they lived on Lake Mary. While living in Alexandria, Judy worked hand in hand with Harry at their meat locker in Barrett and later was a cashier at Fleet Farm.
The greatest joy in Judy’s life was her family. She loved spending time at the lake with her husband, four children and later her grandchildren. She had a wonderful flower garden and enjoyed spending time working in the yard or on her flowers. Her family will remember her as the pillar of the family – always there for everyone.
